First Known GM Fatality After Recall

First Known GM Fatality After Recall

September, 2014

Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:

NY Times reports: “Her accident, on March 18, is the first known fatality to have occurred after G.M. disclosed the defect and began recalling 2.6 million cars.”…. “During months of outcry over G.M.’s handling of the switch issue, as investigations and lawsuits mounted, the company has fought any effort to get the recalled cars off the road until they are repaired.”


And I recommend reading the public comments too.

We are left to wonder how many more tragedies will be allowed to occur before NHTSA and GM act to adopt “Park It Now” that was recommended by Sen. Blumenthal and many others.
